A child's dental health is a vital indicator and moderator of the child's overall health. Learn the keys to maintaining healthy teeth in your child. Written for parents and used by dentists, this clearly-designed book was written by Dr. Chris Baker, a pediatric dentist, dental school faculty member and mom. This work teaches the reader how to prevent or recognize problems in dental and overall health. Learn about the effects of thumb-sucking; how bed-wetting can be an indicator of dental and respiratory problems; the different kinds of orthodontic treatments; what kinds of foods and drinks damage teeth and bones, and much more! Individual chapters discuss dental development and health from infants to teenagers. Common and uncommon dental problems are discussed. After reading this book, parents will know what important questions to ask their child's dentist -- and better understand that dentist's recommendations.
